I've owned Vegas Volt for a long time. It's a revved up coral. It's GORGEOUS. I live for coral and orange lips. This can be use as a nice light pop of color. Sometimes I dab this on and finish with MAC Pink Lemonade lipglass. It wears so beautifully it's creamy and pigmented. Or its paired awesome with a classy pin up look or summer party look.

It suits so many skin tones. I also use it as blush sometimes because I also live for orange and coral blushes. It's a 2 in one product. Worth every penny.

I really tried to love this shade but I was left disappointed, for a MAC lipstick I expected better and maybe it was just poor choice on my behalf but this just wasn't for me. I've since given it away to my Mum and she seems to like it better.

The thing with this was that the coral-peach colour really washed me out. It made me look so pasty and sickly, anytime I tried to give it a shot I ended up wiping it off before I left the house.
The finish itself was quite greasy in my opinion but even still it managed to somehow make my lips look dry, wasn't very pretty.

Overall I wouldn't rate this lipstick very highly, mainly because it did not suit my really pale complexion. It seems to look a lot better on darker skins, so it's probably just a pale people problem.

Such a pretty color! (The picture here is kind of scary up-close....probably better to google image "mac vegas volt" for a more accurate color). I think this color tends to show differently on various people -- I have yellow undertones, so on me it looks a tad orangy, but still a beautiful pink coral color. It's easy to get rid of the orange tone when combined with other pink lip balms/glosses to neutralize the orange out.

The color lasts a long time and is very pigmented. Also has MAC's signature subtle vanilla flavor on all MAC lipsticks.

My only gripes are the lipstick reallyyyy shows your cracks (although it doesn't feel like a drying lipstick) and yes $16 for a tube is a bit pricey in general for lipstick (well, if you use Tom Ford/YSL...then $16 is a total discount lol).

I tried applying the MAC lip primer at the store prior to applying the lipstick as recommended by the SA, but I didn't feel it really helped. I used Nivea's coral-colored lip balm in combo with the lipstick and that worked better in not showing the cracks and taking out the tad orange hue on me.

This color is gorgeous!!!!! On me, it's medium coral/pink/orange shade. I also own it's "dupe" revlon's coral berry. As another reviewer has stated, coral berry has a glossy finish with shimmer in it whereas vegas volt is purely matte. (It's an amplified formula). Coral berry is also more of a peachy color whereas vegas volt is more pink, IMO.

Make sure you exfoliate your lips before application because this lipstick will definitely accentuate your cracks, especially when it sets.

I love wearing this lipstick with a light brown smokey eye or minimal eye makeup. Definitely would repurchase! :)

This is my first Mac lipstick, I have put off on buying Mac and other more costly brands of MU for a long time, I just couldn't justify the price when I know I can get something just as good or better at the drugstore as well as being able to buy more for the price of one HE product. Due to wanting to start a career as a Mua I know that I won't be able to get away with a kit entirely made up of DS products, I went online and researched how to build a pro kit and I found a CCO by my house and stopped in and out of like10 Mac lipsticks Vegas Volt jumped out at me (I all ready have dupes to the other colors the store had). I paid $11.34 w/tax, but would have easily paid the $15. It is so bright and beautiful against my brown skin. I am in love w/ the smell and smooth texture, Its super pigmented and you don't have to pile it on at all, it wears really well too. While I still am in love and devoted to my WNW lipsticks Mac has converted me w/Vegas Volt and I will start collecting their lipsticks.

*I also have the dupe that people are talking about, Revlon Coralberry, while the two are closely similar an obvious difference I noticed when comparing the two is that Revlon Coralberry lacks the extreme pigmentation of VV and the smoothness. Coralberry has some gold shimmer and has to be really built up to get it on, it drags across your lips, and still isn't half as pigmented as VV*

A bright coral-peach-orange. I tend to mix this with a softer color for daytime wear, but wear it as is for nights/weekends.

I'm not sure why, but this seems somewhat 'sheer' it needs some sort of a base underneath it to make the color really show. I feel like I can still see my natural lip color underneath this. I wouldn't expect having to do this for the price/brand.

Having said that, when I applied in the right way it is perfect for summer and looks good on my warm skintone (C6, Revlon CS in Golden Caramel, Sephora Color IQ# 1Y09). I would repurchase this.

Not too orange, not too peach, but a perfect combination of both.

Love the color. It almost goes with everything. The only thing is it doesnt stay for a long time. I feel i have to use it pretty often to keep the color fresh looking. Its pretty creamy so glides on very nicely. Good product would buy it. Apply with a lip primer.

You need this lipstick. You. Yes, you. Go buy it. It'll look beautiful on you as it's the perfect bright coral-y colour. It looks great on light skin and dark skin. You can wear it during the day and at night as it's not overly bright. Just go and buy it, you'll thank me later.

Very vibrant creamy pigmented shade, lovely...however I find I can never make it look good on me. It frustrates me because I want to make it work! I always put it on then end up wiping it off, looks too orange with my black hair..if that even makes sense. One day I will get it out and pull it off!

NW45- looks like a bright orangey coral on me. It's a little too bright for my taste.
